In This War Of Mine you do not play as an elite soldier, rather a group of civilians trying to survive in a besieged city; struggling with lack of food, medicine and constant danger from snipers and hostile scavengers. The game provides an experience of war seen from an entirely new angle.
The pace of This War of Mine is imposed by the day and night cycle. During the day snipers outside stop you from leaving your refuge, so you need to focus on maintaining your hideout: crafting, trading and taking care of your survivors. At night, take one of your civilians on a mission to scavenge through a set of unique locations for items that will help you stay alive.
Make life-and-death decisions driven by your conscience. Try to protect everybody from your shelter or sacrifice some of them for longer-term survival. During war, there are no good or bad decisions; there is only survival. The sooner you realize that, the better.
• Inspired by real-life events
• Control your survivors and manage your shelter
• Craft weapons, alcohol, beds or stoves – anything that helps you survive
• Make decisions - an often unforgiving and emotionally difficult experience
• Randomized world and characters every time you start a new game
• Charcoal-stylized aesthetics to complement the game's theme
This War of Mine experience is now broadened with "The Little Ones" expansion. "The Little Ones" explores the hardships of wartime survival as seen from an entirely new perspective―that of a child. This DLC puts you in charge of a group of adults and children stuck in a besieged city, struggling with basic necessities. TWoM: The Little Ones focuses not only on the reality of enduring war, but also on how even in times of conflict, kids are still kids: they laugh, cry, play, and see the world differently. In addition to thinking about survival, you'll have to summon your inner child to understand how to protect the little ones. Their youth, and their future, are in your hands.
• Experience the biggest expansion to This War of Mine
• Protect innocent children
• Craft toys, play with kids, and be the caretaker they need
• Meet new adult civilians in scenarios with children

Thank you guys for making this amazing port! Such a good game and this is how I discovered it but I am on level 18 right now and for some reason the game shuts down occasionally and deletes some of my data! Thanks for everything!
I love the concept and have played many scenarios but the English is driving me nuts. When starting a new day, rather than “None of us was wounded”. It should be “None of us were wounded”. Please consider tenses in your next update.
The game is fun and all but I was playing a game where it is just Marko and he became so sad he was broken. After this he just sat down until he died he wouldn’t move no matter what I did. I kept resetting the day but he would not move. It would be very helpful if you could fix this. Besides that great game.
I absolutely love this game it’s really well made and detailed and I love that you can have children it’s so cool and it is so realistic but one thing I would add is Toddlers! I know what your thinking why would this person want toddlers well there are kids right and if you can make them, you can make toddlers and not just that can you make children scavenge? I know yeah it’s weird but in real life kids are able to scavenge so why not in the game? And can you make it able to see children in the areas like the places you scavenge because I find it weird that the only children you see are the two kids who need medicine and the playable ones so please add these when you have the chance and that will be cool so keep up the good work on making this game awsome.
This game is brilliant. However, recent updates have made it unplayable on my device. I tap on the icon and it's an instant crash. Until this issue is fixed, I will sadly have to give this one star. It doesn't work on the devices it advertises, which is unacceptable in my eyes.
So I’ve said to myself “I will get this game.”And I did.I got the little ones DLC.(Just to see how it was)And it was amazing. I got emotional in this DLC since the kid wrote about everything (if you had one) and it gets sad of how they write it. Amazing work and I hope you work on this game a lot more
I have been playing this game for a little while now, and I rather enjoy it. I would enjoy This War Of Mine much more, however, if I could speed up the game. For example, when all of my players are either sleeping, or just standing around waiting for water to filter and vegetables to grow, I would love to speed the game up 2x or 4x so I am spending less time idly staring at my screen and wasting my battery.
This game is legit the best in the App Store. But I only have one issue. What can you do after you survive all the scenarios? I’d suggest you guys add custom stories, which basically enables players to make their own stories and place random characters in them. It’d be a lot of fun, trust me 😉.
Nothing good that hasn’t been said before can be, THAT’S how magnificent this game is. My only wish is for the episodic story DLC to be released on all mobile, or at least iOS. But don’t let that stop you, or you’ll regret missing out on a truly original, engaging, and at times heartbreaking game.
This “game” is a brilliant display of human artistry in video gaming. It is so much more than a simple diversion. Unfortunately the review section is tainted by gaming-incompetent crybabies who also fail miserably at seeing even a glimpse of what the “game” actually presents.
